I believe lip filler treatments should enhance your natural shape, be in proportion with the rest of your face by following the rules of beauty, and above all follow the normal anatomy. Your lips should look hydrated, gently volumised and contoured but still soft and able to move properly.
As with the rest of my work, I specialise in natural-looking, subtle results rather than an exaggerated fake look. My lip filler treatments are individually tailored to improve the definition and texture of your lips. I take my time and pay close attention to detail to craft beautiful, balanced lips that sit harmoniously within your face.
Lip Rejuvenation Treatment
As we age, our lips lose their natural volume and shape. They become drier, thinner and begin to turn down at the corners. Vertical lipstick/smokers lines develop as the mouth draws inwards. My lip filler rejuvenation treatments aim to address all these issues, rebuilding the lips so reversing the signs of ageing and create a more youthful looking mouth.
Lip Augmentation Treatment
Full, sensuous lips are a sign of youthfulness and beauty. Often people will complain that they have a thin top lip or that it disappears when they smile. Soft, volumising lip fillers can be placed carefully to rebalance and enhance your lips, without distorting the shape or overwhelming the rest of your features.
What are dermal fillers?
Dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid – a sugar molecule that exists naturally in our skin and other tissues and which depletes with age. Fillers come in various forms and consistencies, suitable for a variety of uses. When fillers are injected under the skin they provide revolumisation and collagen stimulation. Because the hyaluronic acid molecule holds many times its own weight in water, fillers also bind water within the skin, acting like a reservoir to hydrate the skin from within.
How soon will I see the results from fillers
Filler results are instant, although continue to improve over the 4 weeks after treatment, as they take on water and “settle in” to the tissues.
Will I have “duck lips” or a “pillow face”?
Absolutely not. My filler treatments are always bespoke to you following an extensive consultation, using the specific product best suited to your face. I carefully and conservatively place just the right amount of filler at the correct depth and never overfill. I only aim to replace what you’ve lost over time so that you look naturally refreshed.
How long do fillers last?
This depends on the type of filler used, where it’s placed and many other factors such as individual metabolism, sun exposure etc. Generally speaking fillers last between 6-18 months (although can last longer), however many patients opt to have a maintenance procedure every year or so to prevent returning to square one.
Are there any side effects from fillers?
Risk of side effects depends on the area treated, and I will explain this to you in detail during your consultation. For example, lips are more prone to bruising and swelling than any other area of the face, although this can occur anywhere. Most filler side effects are usually well settled within a few days although can persist for longer.
More serious side effects include filler migration, reaction, infection and blood vessel occlusion. Fortunately these are extremely rare, and as a highly trained and experienced practitioner, I take many steps to further reduce these risks and keep you safe. One of the greatest benefits of hyaluronic acid filler is that it can be dissolved with an enzyme called hyaluronidase, which means the procedure may be reversed in the event of a complication.
